Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
All can say is OMgosh, this is AWESOME! I could eat the entire pie by myself! I did as some other reviewers suggested, and baked the crust for a few minutes first. I realized that may have been a mistake later on, because the topping didn't extend to the edges, and the top and bottom didn't really came together like it looked in the picture. But my oh my, this is so delicious! Next time I'm not going to prebake and see what happens.

German Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
Just made this for dinner and it was wonderful! The syrup really makes the dish. And it's nice to have all the ingredients on hand. It's quick, simple, and great. My husband said it should be our new Sunday breakfast, but it's really an 'anytime' meal. Thanks for the recipe!

German Chocolate Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I'm so glad I made this recipe and not one of the others that were on this site. This one looked a lot easier but didn't have as many ratings. I decided to give this one a try and it was wonderful! My husband loves German Chocolate cake and so I made it for his birthday. I decided to go for a home made frosting instead of out of the can, and I'm glad I did. This is easy to make. I boiled it for about 20 minutes on medium, added the nuts and coconut and let cool. I didn't have to add anything to get it to be thick enough, like I read about in other reviews of other recipes. This one turned out great and my husband loved it!

The Best Banana Pudding

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Yum! I'm not a big banana pudding fan, but I think it's because of the way it was made when I was a kid, living in the north. Now that I live in the south, I HAD to learn to like it, so I attempted a few different recipes. This one is the winner, in my mind. I didn't think it was "too sweet" as others stated. I halved this recipe for a smaller crowd, and I used only 3 large bananas, which was just fine. It has a nice, light, fluffy texture. Will continue to make!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
I gave this a "5" because I used half cake flour and half regular flour. It had a lighter, more "cakey" texture than I think it would have otherwise. Next time I may even use more cake flour and less regular. My husband said this was the best banana cake he'd ever had. I frosted it with a vanilla frosting from a can and it was yummy!

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
These are wonderful! A little more work to put together then some other recipes I've used, but well worth it. We used fresh mountain blueberries in ours, and my husband ate several more than usual, but said they'd be just as good without the berries. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

Frosted Banana Bars

Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
I just made these tonight, and decided to try baking them instead of frying. They really turned out great. I did put some seasoned salt and paprika into the flour mixture, and I used buttermilk instead of regular milk, just because I had some that needed to be used up. It didn't drip off the onions at all, so that was a benefit to using it. I just put the o-rings on a plate after dunking into the milk mixture, and then did the bread crumbs. I poured about 1/2 cup of oil onto a large baking sheet and baked them at 400 for about 20 minutes, turning halfway through. They were crispy and I didn't have the mess of frying. Yum!

Herbed Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
This was absolutely amazing! My 16 year old son asked if I would make this twice a week. The sugar in the rub made all the difference. It was moist and juicy and very flavorful. I will always use this recipe when I make a pork loin. Thanks for sharing.

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
Really good. I've never made salsa before, but know what I like in a salsa. I used a 28 oz. box of finely chopped tomatoes, which I drained as some had recommended, but now I wish I hadn't, as the salsa came out thicker than I expected. And, I didn't have chiles, so I used one fresh jalepeno (next time I will just use half of one). Other than that, I followed to the letter, and am very happy with it.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I gave this 5 stars because it's very similar to one of our favorite fall soups, but much easier to make. I didn't have any soy sauce on hand, so used 2 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce instead and it was still good, but probably would be better with the soy. It's a great base recipe. You could add sliced sauteed mushrooms and onions to this, and it would be great. The consistency is that of a creamy hot cocoa, so if you're expecting a heavy soup, you won't find it here. For those afraid of using that much curry, don't be. It's not as spicy as you might think in this dish.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I thought this was excellent. I pretty much made it as written, except I did add a bit more ginger and some garlic powder. I didn't think it was bland at all. Because I used a tough cut of beef, I marinated it in soy sauce and garlic for about 2 hours (after slicing it), so maybe that helped to give it more flavor than some have said it has. I also added some carrots, mushrooms, and onions, but it would have been fine with just the beef and broccoli.

Traditional Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I was so excited to actually have fluffy potatoes for once, instead of the gluey ones I normally make. I don't know what did the trick with these, but they were wonderful! I'll be making potatoes this way from now on. The proportions of potatoes, milk, salt, and butter are perfect! Thanks for posting this recipe.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2013
I made this for the first time a few weeks ago, and loved it. The Swiss cheese really does make the difference. Even my picky son ate it. I've got a pan of it in the oven now, but didn't have the Swiss, so we'll see. I'm sure it will still be almost as yummy. Great texture. Smooth and creamy. This time, I also crushed up some buttery crackers to put on the top.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2013
I used dark cocoa, so it was almost more like a gnash, but delicious!

Easy Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2012
I'm not into spicy food, nor do I like chili all that much, but I made this for a youth group function and it was not only a hit with the kids, but with me, too! This is the only recipe that I use for chili now. It has a little kick but not overpowering at all. I follow the recipe exactly, except I leave out the green pepper because I don't like it, and it turns out great every time.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
I made this with leftover rotisseri chicken. The only thing I did was saute some minced onion and garlic with the butter and used 2% milk instead of the cream, but then I did add a little cream at the end. Other than that, followed it to the letter. It was delicious! Restaurant quality for sure.

Old-Fashioned Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
My family loves this dish and asks for it frequently. It's so easy to make and so delicious. The only thing I add to it is about a 1/2 tsp. of salt to the corn mixture, and instead of 3 cans of creamed corn, I use 2 and then 1 can of whole corn, drained. Delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

Raspberry Linzer Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I've been making these for years, except I don't do the egg white or the nuts. They really do take some time to make and the dough can be very soft and sticky, so refrigerating before rolling out is a must. I also sprinkle confectioners sugar over the finished cookies and they are beautiful to look at. I bake them every Christmas and often have to make two or three batches, because everyone loves them.

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
I made this a few weeks ago and am going to make it again tonight. This is an awesome recipe! I had gotten a sirloin tip roast for just over 2.00 on sale one day and looked for a recipe to use with it. This one was loved by all in my family. I didn't even mind paying full price for another roast! One thing that I did do was to cut the gristle (silver skin) out of the middle before seasoning it.
